While southern actress Deeksha Seth, who is making her Bollywood debut with LEKAR HUM DEEWANA DIL, comes from a complete non-filmy background, her co-star Armaan Jain hails from ‘The Kapoor Khandaan’. Well, showman Raj Kapoor is Armaan’s maternal grandpa!

Being a star kid or coming from a filmy family, one quite expects starry airs. But it wasn’t in the case of our newbie Armaan.
Ask Deeksha how was her first interaction with Armaan and she says, “It was very nice. When I first saw and met the curly haired Armaan, dressed in black tee and red pants, in Illuminati Films office, I thought he is just an ordinary guy. As he left, after our conversation, someone told me that you know he is Raj Kapoor’s grandson and I was so damn surprised that I couldn’t believe it! I thought he would be some arrogant guy and throw starry tantrums, since he belongs from a starry clan. But what I really liked about him is that he is very humble and down-to-earth person, unlike what I initially perceived. He’s very hard-working and dedicated.”
While Armaan makes his foray into acting with LHDD, Deeksha has already done quite a few movies down south.
Did her seniority and experience take over? “Actually, Armaan has assisted in few films earlier. Whatever technical knowledge I learnt on the sets, he acquired it by working behind the camera as an assistant director. So I think we are quite equal. What I believe is with every film you should be like a newcomer, who gives his 100% and shows enthusiasm. So I worked on LEKAR HUM DEEWANA DIL like an absolute newcomer,” says Deeksha
Directed by Imtiaz Ali’s brother Arif Ali, produced by Saif Ali Khan & Dinesh Vijan’s Illuminati Films, LHDD is set to release on July 4, 2014
